First, I'm not a doctor and strongly recommend that you get medical care from a doctor for anything major or questionable. We have the finest crisis medical care in the world, take advantage of it if and when you need it! Next, what little knowledge I have about medicine came the hard way from major problems and disasters in my own world. Please enjoy these stories and the information, but remember it is up to you how you manage your own health.
For those who are interested in spite of spending many years designing traditional medical and critical care patient monitoring systems, I also did quite a bit of computer research on what factors most contribute to a long healthy life. In studying 12,000 patients for the American Medical Preventics Society the one overwhelming factor in addition to good medical and dental care was having a strong positive outlook. The oriental and western cultures use very different names and explanations, but the bottom line is those who keep their thoughts positive live far longer and healthier. I am also a very strong believer that touch, massage and sharing helps the healing processes. I've spent years both practicing and studying a number of ways to assist traditional medicine with the healing process that I believe improve healing. These pages share a few of these approaches.
